The Regina Riot, a women's tackle football team, will be coming to Estevan to promote their team and the sport to girls and women.
The Riot will be holding a one-day clinic at the Dana Quewezance Memorial Field at the Woodlawn Athletic Park on Saturday, April 26, starting at 10 a.m. Girls of all ages are invited to participate.
Local people will be paired up with a Riot player, and engage in hands-on drills and skill development without equipment. All participants will receive a gift from the Riot.
“They're going to be running some basic drills, showing the girls what they do in an average practice,” said event organizer Chris Toth.
There are multiple goals associated with the camps. The Riot want to promote the organization to people in southeast Saskatchewan, and they want females to know that they can compete with males in football and other sports, Toth said.
Toth said he has watched the Riot play before, and they are a very well-trained and well-coached team that plays a high-calibre level of football. Last season they won their league, which mostly boasts teams from southern Saskatchewan.
